Title: General consideration of energy compression

Abstract

This general treatment of energy compression deals with some of the fundamental considerations involved in such a process. Discussed are: (1) the need for complementary energy modes such as magnetic electric or kinetic energy modes among which to transfer the energy from one to another; (2) the difference between longitudinal and transverse compression where the former shortens the pulse length and the latter the pulse width; (3) the adiabatic vs. the nonadiabatic process and the need for coherence; (4) the maximum efficiency path and the optimum number of stages to achieve a given compression; and (5) the generalized action equation of compression. A variety of compression circuits are discussed utilizing some of the above mentioned principles.
